Vol. 4. No. 1 (April 2009) issue of reCollections: Journal of the National Museum of Australia is now online
reCollections: Journal of the National Museum of Australia is an independent, peer-reviewed academic journal, published online and in print twice a year.
In Volume 4 number 1 (April 2009):
• Louise Zarmati argues for students to be given learning opportunities out of the classroom that allow them to see, touch and experience Australia's historical and archaeological heritage.
• Nina Berrell explores the important work carried out by the first Aboriginal Arts Board in raising the profile of Aboriginal arts overseas in the 1970s.
• Peter Lane ponders why medals distributed in Australia and the Pacific by Captain Cook are now considered of major historical significance and yet, only 19 years ago, drew almost no interest at auction.
• Leon Paroissien interviews architect Andrew Andersons about issues relating to museum design in Australia in recent decades.
This edition also features reviews of recent exhibitions and museum-related books.
The aim of the journal is to promote research into, and stimulate awareness and discussion of, issues relating to museums and collections. Articles relate specifically to Australia and the Asia-Pacific region, or confront issues that are broadly relevant to museums or material history. The editors welcome contributions relating to the role of museums in society, museum practice, and the history, collection, interpretation and display of museum collections.
